When I was small I had Eczema; throughout childhood it didn't really reappear and rarely showed on the ears. I am now 19 and have had Rosacea for 5 years.

I was lucky enough to go on a holiday trip overseas to Malaysia :p. I noticed that ever since I've been here (first day till 1.5 months later) my Rosacea hasn't appeared on my face :D... maybe it's due to the humidity or possibly limited computer time - radiation? I live in Australia and it's quite dry. Everyday I would get the flu, probably because of allergies/pollen, it got worse after showers and died down after 2-3 hrs, comes back when I'm in air-conditioning (I need this because of my Rosacea so not using it is not an option), it's gone since I'm in Malaysia. When I get back, I'm sure it'll come, can someone suggest something I can take to subside the sneezing? Also, since being here, I've noticed Eczema has come back to bug me on my arms.

My neck is very itchy and my skin on my face and neck has been peeling/flaking constantly for 1 year. I have to admit, my skin is dry but I use a good moisturizer (trying new products too)... it is still peeling, I apply moisturizer every time I get out of the shower or wash my face, it basically provides a 'moist' coating 97% of the day. The peeling/flaking is so bad that when I eat, the skin around my mouth will come off :eek:. It is very embarrassing and I need a solution... for now I've resorted to not eating in public (starving).

I saw a doctor here which said to me, "... you don't have Rosacea, try eczema cream." I've tried it before she told me to and after... my skin still peels and it does not help with the itching at all; it may be aggravating it considering it contains alcohol and Rosacea and alcohol don't mix! I have also tried applying the Rosacea gel to my neck but it doesn't stop the itching either.

Do I just need a stronger dose of hydrocortisone? Is this Eczema or something else? Please provide me with your suggestions :rolleyes:, looking forward to hearing from ya'll!

  • I have a sister in law that has peeling of her hands and feet and she was told that she lacks the cells that hold moisture. It has a specific name but I forgot what she say or what she does about it.

  • DON'T ever take cortizone for it! Doctors love handing out the stuff, but it can cause incredible damage, short and long term (and many doctors say so too). In particular it is very bad for skin, it will pretend to make it better but in reality make it worse. My mother has been through severe excema - we know. Cortizone only has some place in emergencies, to avoid death.Try camphor cream (aqueous cream with camphor oil). Don't wash the area too often with soap, only with water. Dab on colloidal silver (it is made with distilled water). This silver is also a good cleanser / deodorant. See www.nutrasilver.com for a type you can take internally. Here in ZA we brew it at home. It has proven consistently better than any med or antibiotic, for almost any problem. If it is correctly made there are no side effects. See www.tetrahedron.org/articles/colloidal_silver.htmlTake homeopathic Resque Remedy in the mouth, also Vitamin-B12 (complex), Omega-3 (salmon oil or flax seed oil) and of Vitamin-C 1000 mg (slow release). There are allergies underlying your condition. Try NAET treatments, visit www.naet.com to locate a therapist in your area (under Asia). A traditional Chinese doctor is another great idea, see http://www.acufinder.com/list_acupuncturists.php?show_all=false&zip=&distance=10&country=3&state=&province=&city=&lastname=&style=&technique=&expertise=&language=&association=&searchtype=searchform&srt=rnd&listtype=paidandfree&page=1 to locate one.

  • eQuinox,Two things come to mind when reading your posts, and neither are going to be treated correctly by allopathic medicine, in my opinion. 1. Candida overload can cause chronic skin issues and hosts of other seemingly non-related problems. 2. Allergies - this could be to food products or environmental (computer or office air conditioning) - NAET is the ONLY treatment that will pinpoint exactly where the allergy lies. Both of these above disorders can be sucessfully treated with NAET. NAET is just simply fantastic - please look into this noninvasive form of treatment! www.naet.com to find out more and find a practitioner near you. Doctors treat eczema/rosacea with creams and Curly Stooge is right - corticozone is nasty. The problem is soo much deeper than a topical ointment - this won't get to the bottom of WHY you have these problems - NAET does, and clears if from your system. Please, please try it and let us know how it goes. Best wishesDOM
